No problem Kumar. I'm sure AlexH just has something come up.  I love fog and mist shots, so I'm really looking forward to everyone's contribution.

I'll echo Kumar thanks. An appropriate challenge for the misty month of March. Perhaps we'll find AlexH in the mist. 😊

Three from me

A tree in the mist in Mont Tremblant, north of Montreal. For some odd reason, some of my pictures get all squashed when I post them here. To see it in its proper dimensions you have to click on it.

Malbun, Liechtenstein. My son and I took the chair lift up and just watched the fog blanket the whole valley.

A sun dog?

 

Not heard that expression before. What does it mean or relate to?

I see them now and then....maybe they have other names in different parts of the world.  Don’t know how it got it’s name though.  Here is the Wikipedia definition:

 

“The sun dog is a member of the family of halos, caused by the refraction of sunlight by ice crystals in the atmosphere. Sun dogs typically appear as a pair of subtly colored patches of light, around 22° to the left and right of the Sun, and at the same altitude above the horizon as the Sun.”

Thank you Michael. Why didn't I think to look at wiki.

It does relate to freezing fog. That’s the only time I’ve seen them. A rare event. I took this over my back fence in Oklahoma City. Why it’s called the “dog” part of sun dog, who knows. Did you notice the sun has been distorted into the shape of a diamond?

Saw this explanation.
Patches of light that sometimes appear beside the sun are called sundogs. The scientific name is parhelion (plural: parhelia) from the Greek parēlion, meaning "beside the sun." Speculation is that they are called that because they follow the sunlike a dog follows its master.

Fog begins to lift in the early morning hours as the white night turns into a colorful sunrise, Stockholm Archipelago, Sweden:

Mist rises from the Gullfoss Waterfall, Iceland:

Mist rises as the Chappaqua Fire Department and several neighboring fire departments fight a blaze two doors down from my house in the early morning hours. This is one of the first photos I ever took with my Olympus OMD-E1. I got it hours earlier and it was charging when I was awoken by the fire.

Thanks Jill for taking this over. Great concept. I didn't realize how many misty and foggy images I had. I also just spent ages fixing keywords, etc. These contests are such a good way to take a second look through images - It makes me realize what I haven't uploaded and also shows me how many images have next to no supertags and way too many keywords as well as missing ones. Thanks again for stepping up Jill. I really enjoy seeing everyone's concepts each month.

Very beautiful photos, everyone.

 My last entry:

winter-alpenglow-snowy-scenic-landscape-

 

This winter landscape was taken couple of years ago on a snowshoeing trip in Banff National Park, Canada.  That long horizontal ridge center right is called "Monarch Ramparts" and sits on Continental Divide & provincial border between Alberta and British Columbia.  Mt. Monarch above.  In the distance far left is famous Mt. Assiniboine, aka "Matterhorn of the Rockies".  These meadows below are dotted with lakes in summer.  I was just returning from successful ascent of unofficially named "Healy Pass Peak" when this low cloud rolled in creating almost surreal view.   From here it is ~4 hours back to trailhead & I hiked with headlamp, but this was small price to pay for this outstanding alpenglow
